Burns farm tractors

Burns was an agricultural-machinery and tractor importer based in the United Kingdom with headquarters in West Linton. The company also acted as a distributor of these imported products. It was a private company with share capital and went by the name W Burns Tractors Limited. During its heydays, Burns was also involved in the supply of shipping and aircraft equipment. Aside from that, the company sold other industrial equipment as well. It was founded in 1978 and remained in operation for more than two decades. However, in the early years of the twenty-first century, Burns ceased its business ventures and no longer supplies any products to customers due to financial difficulties. Although a list of key position holders is available, there isn't much information about the company on the web, which can be attributed to the fact that the company didn't keep any documentation. This was one of the reasons for its demise. It is also pertinent to mention that The Royal Bank of Scotland's mortgage against Burns is still pending and unresolved.
